In some ways iWave Systems boards are similar to Wandboard Solo and Dual boards, but they target industrial customers rather than hobbyists, come in Pico ITX form factor, and the company provides technical & quick customization support for over 5 years.

Odd, I didn’t think that either the solo of dualite had SATA support.

Probably since they had designed it with the big boy quad in mind, but decided to start out selling it with the smaller solo and Dual-lite

That might explain the traces and pads being there, but it doesn’t explain why they’d populate the connector.

iWave’s Duallite/Solo SBC is design compatible with Quad/Dual and so the SATA connector option is provided in the board. But in Duallite/Solo production SBC, this connector will not be populated.
